My Kids

On the last version of my site, my daughter pointed out that while I had devoted a heap of attention to my dogs, I had dealt with my kids less than satisfactorily. So, here’s the new portal to their worlds.
I asked each of them to write their own introduction and give me a link to a site where you could find out more about them. Here – unedited – is what they came up with at short notice over dinner in Newtown one night in December 2007. For some weird reason Mary set them off writing in the third person!
All things being good, I’ll get them to update the profiles here from time to time.

She is currently studying Arts/Law at ANU in Canberra (but she’ll probably drop Law, because it looks like hard work). She doesn’t like long walks on the beach, or pina coladas. She does like politics, indie music, pretentious indie films, and cute clothes. She is probably a political genius and is also really good at coming up with hilarious slogans for T-shirts.
